Well, it is the same thing. Actually, I don't go that far but I do have a tendency to say soory for sorry. my cousins from Ohio once asked my aunt why my sister and I sound Canadian. Now I'm starting to sound New Yorkerish supposedly.

Of course, my grandmother's Ohio accent makes her say stuff like warsh instead of wash.

GAH! Too many to count. Ah's a stickler for good talkin n' good writin!

'Supposubbly' which should be SUPPOSEDLY

'Mawaukee' for MILWAUKEE (where I used to live)

'axe' for ASK (that is just wrong wrong wrong)

'nuke-yuler' for NUCLEAR (our own GDubya does that one)

some Texasisms that I've noticed since living here:

'all' for OIL

'innit'? for ISN'T IT?

'bidness' (or binniss) for BUSINESS

saying words on the wrong syllable, such as:

WISconsin
POlice
INsurance

Lots more where those came from!

one more: in NYC they prounounce Houston "HOUSE-ton"!

what an opportunity to get some opinions on a long standing little gripe

I hope I can express this phonetically....
me and language cassperanto



Two names Penelope and Persephone

Option 1 Penny-low-puh
Option 2 Pen-elle-oh-pee

Option A Purr-sef-oh-knee
Option B Purr-sef-fone

Maybe there is option , 3,4, C, D, but a definitive answer on this could save a life

so it all ends in not

my dad always pronounces the word measure "may-shure" instead of "mesh-er" I tease him about it all the time.
I'm sure that there are words that I pronounce wrong I just can't think of them at the moment. I'm always stumbling over my words. I always say Star Trak instead of Star Trek.

I get comments on a daily basis about my Boston accent. Apparently it's pretty strong. Mostly for the word bizarre, which I pronounce biz-ah, and use quite often. I got quite a few comments on this from Lady Lemon and Diamond in providence when talking about the song Party Girl!

Okay here are a few that make me insanne...

"Illinois" is not to be pronounced with an 's' at the end. That's just the way it is people so stop saying Illinoissss!!!

Also, while I'm on the topic, it is not "Ell-inois" it's "Ill inois"

Yep. It also kills me when people say "pen" instead of "pin" or (this takes the cake) "melk" instead of "milk." That makes me

Although I've been told I say "ruff" instead of "roooooff" so maybe I don't have so much room to talk...
